Description of problem:  SELinux prevented kde4-config from writing ./.kde

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:  I have no clue.  I have not used kde since reloading Fc10 (I have Fc11 now).  I use the supposedly more stable Gnome now only.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:


SELinux prevented kde4-config from writing ./.kde.

Detailed Description:

SELinux prevented kde4-config from writing ./.kde. If ./.kde is a core file, you
may want to allow this. If ./.kde is not a core file, this could signal a
intrusion attempt.

Allowing Access:

Changing the "allow_daemons_dump_core" boolean to true will allow this access:
"setsebool -P allow_daemons_dump_core=1."

Fix Command:

setsebool -P allow_daemons_dump_core=1

Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2009-08-23 20:33:06 UTC
This is bug 504209, which has the same cause as bug 498809 and thus got closed as a duplicate of that one. Those got fixed on June 15, 2009 in both Fedora 10 and 11. It is no use reporting bugs months after you saw them, without any clue as to whether they even still apply. And if that bug is the reason for you calling KDE "unstable", well it is fixed now (and it was always harmless).
